HOMING

Cats in our care are NEVER handed out on demand.

We carry out visits to the homes of everyone who wants to adopt one of our cats. This is to ensure that:

a) new owners have full information about how to care for their new cat. This includes information about feeding, routine parasite treatments (fleas and worms!), provision of appropriate veterinary care and provision of care for the cat in the event of the owner’s absence from home.

b) people and cats are well suited and compatible with one another in temperament and behaviour.

c) the home is situated in a reasonably safe location and that any potential hazards are identified.

d) new owners are fully aware of the possible expenses entailed in taking on the responsibility of a cat.

Every effort is made to match new owner and cat but, should you fail to bond with your cat or you feel that he is not content with you, we will be happy to take him back and try to find you a more suitable one.

All cats in our care are tested to make sure they are not positive for FIV or FeLV, they are vaccinated, neutered and microchipped.
This costs us around £150 per cat/kitten.

If you adopt, we ask for a contribution towards the expenses to ensure that your cat is happy and healthy:

  • adoption fee is £60
  • adoption fee for cats of 10 years or more is £35
  • fee for working cats/ferals is £60 for a pair.
